COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
MIGHTY ARROW Pale Ale provides lots of pleasurable sniffs from Amarillo and Cascade hops with a fetching honey malt base. This is our brewed tribute to Arrow, Kim’s Aussie/Border Collie mix who ran (literally) New Belgium for 12 years. When she wasn’t patrolling the brewery grounds, she was famous for her office visits: She never met a tummy rub she didn’t like. Atta girl Arrow.

Nice pale! I particularly dig the amarillo hop nose (without being too strong) and the honey. Well put together.

Clear and golden draught with a 1 finger white foamy head. Smell was subtle: cascade and honey malt. Flavor was very hoppy for a New Belgium, and all around pretty good for an APA. Mouthfeel was a little high in carbonation, although it fit the style well, and the hops smoothed it out in the back. All around a great APA, very drinkable, and easy to share with just about anyone! I’ll return for more!

Growler, light white head, hoppy aroma, deep golden color. Nicely hopped and balanced, finish is very smooth. Very good drinkable beer.

A very good pale. Has a hint of fruitiness, but not over the top. Close to perfect hoppiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a great APA. Nice smooth malt that balances the hop profile very nicely. Nothing excessive and brilliant but yet has enough depth to keep me drinking. The ABV is a little high but it works with the sweetness and the stronger herbal and citrus character of the amarillo.

garretjax (103) - Colorado, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Honey copper color and a puffy white head. Soft floral scents and a tweak of bready bitterness. Big carbonation and light medium body. The hops are light easy on the tongue. A bit of a flat under dry finish with out the rush of bitterness from hops.

You know this brewery gets a lot of crap, but remember they are a green brewery and do have some good brews. So forget fat tire and think honestly. This pale is more of a traditional English pale than an APA. Still it’s solid and refreshing even though most of the new school would say mild ,or bland. A winner and you knew all along that if NBBC ever made a pale ale it would be traditional and solid! Let’s face it they sell a butt load of beer and don’t really need us to buy it! some one will because it’s good!

Great pale ale. Nothing exceptional, but eagerly quaffable and on par with the high quality brews that New Belgium continues to produce.

Aroma: A hopped brightness not to be expected from any pale ale /Nice enough to be made into a cologne Appearance: Typical pale ale slightly on the dark side Taste: Wonderful brights of citrus an wheat, akin to a key lime or lemon merange made with beer just a touch of hops Pilate: Typical and moderate in all regards Overall: Bright and wonderful... let’s leave it at that
